About the KRIV volunteers

About the KRIV volunteers

Volunteers meet at 9.40 each Friday at the east barn, Savio House, wearing clothing and boots suitable for outdoor work and bringing a packed lunch.  Cars may be left during the day in the east car park at Savio House.  Tools are provided and where tasks require personal protective equipment such as hi-viz vests, safety helmets, hedging gauntlets or safety glasses, this will be provided too.  If not working locally, we car-share to the work site.  
The work programme is published six months ahead and any changes made within the programme period are added here as soon as possible.

The KRIV countryside volunteer group was formed during the Kerridge Ridge and Ingersley Vale Landscape Partnership Project, the first such project supported by the UK Heritage Lottery Fund.  For details see the legacy website   http://www.kriv.org.uk/

The volunteer group works in the KRIV area to consolidate and maintain the achievements of the HLF-supported  project but their work range extends to elsewhere in Bollington and Rainow.  Hedges have also been laid in Disley, Pott Shrigley and Higher Hurdsfield.
